Holograms to fight fake bus passes in Chandigarh (India)

19 05 2007

The Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) would introduce holograms on its bus passes to fight counterfeits eat into its revenues. A hologram is to be used on the passes so as to avoid any duplication of it.

The decision has come in the wake of fake bus passes that have been confiscated by the CTU inspection staff during its raid in the buses a few days ago.

CTU officials would soon be talking to the various hologram manufacturers in Delhi for finalizing the details including negotiations in regard to the price, the number of supply of the passes on monthly basis, and whether they could come up with other foolproof features that cannot be duplicated.
